Galveston’s Warrant Round-Up Underway
Police Urge the Public to Resolve Warrants Immediately or Risk Arrest
Galveston, Texas – The Galveston Police Department (GPD), along with law enforcement jurisdictions across the state of Texas, is participating in the “2012 Great Texas Warrant Round-Up”. In an effort to clear as many outstanding warrants as possible, GPD is working with other municipalities throughout Galveston County, as well as the Galveston County Sheriff’s Office, to apprehend any person with outstanding warrants. Arrests can take place at any location, including the defendant’s home, school, or workplace.
Law enforcement officials are urging the public to act immediately and clear any warrants. No amnesty is being offered in conjunction with the Round-Up campaign.
